bringi brings us. president has start aid meeting with siveng leaders to talk about this economy. earlier today the president metaphmet for the first time with congressional leaders to avoid the fiscal cliff we talked so much about. both sides emerged saying they are willing to make one choices. the one word they all used to describe the meeting was constructive. >> our challenge is to make sure that, you know, we are able it to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the people's business. >> to show our seriousness, we've put revenue on the table, as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. >> let me bring in nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker. from those two sound bites alone, one would think things are a lot better than when this battle was forged before. >> reporter: well, i think that both sides feel a fresh urgency to get something done. you're absolutely right, tamron. they know they can't have the same sort of disastrous debacle happen that we saw during the debt ceiling fight

, a personal crisis that he knew was going down. the rest of us did not at the time of this aattack. >> it deledge mizing what could be an important inquiry, because four americans are dead including a u.s. ambassador. we want to know what went wrong so it's not repeated. if this takes on the perception as it is of a partisan witch had you not -- witch-hunt we won't get the answers we deserve. >> the point about those who saw as a partisan witch-hunt. we showed video of senator joseph lieberman. if he does not show the same contempt as the republican senators this morning, it does certainly leave them out there without this trio or bipartisan trio that we've seen or quartet. in his interview with cnn, i'm going to read a portion of what he said when asked about susan rice. she had a distinguished career up until now. secondly, i don't know if i feel i know exactly what she was told before she went on tv that sunday. i think we ought to find out before we decide on whether she's a good or bad public servant. that's what he said on the 25th. >> but here's the problem. the senate's alr

post. sam stein with us. sam, let's start off with you. speaker boehner says he's open to tax revenue, also spending cuts. similar to the speaker boehner before some of the house republicans got ahold of him, and he basically pulled back on a deal struck with the president. >> yeah. i mean, this is a complicated thing for speaker boehner because he doesn't have a lot of chips here. obama can sit on his hands and not sign any extension of the bush tax cuts. so he's got a very difficult task ahead. i think he has less leverage than in the summer of 2011. he signaled very publicly yesterday he's open to revenue raisers. what that constitutes is anyone's guess. it could be a magic dynamic growth stuff, but he realized at this jeng tunction tur he doesn have a lot of chips to play. he has to go back to his caucus and sell it. >> let's see what he said on reaching out to congressional republicans. let's play it please. >> that door is open. it has been open. what we want to do is break that misguided notion that somehow obstruction is a winning strategy and that partisan ship should take pr

for us to come to an agreement with the president, and by lowering rates and cleaning up the tax code we know that we're going to get more economic growth. >> here's what's at stake if they cannot come to a compromise. the congressional budget office says it would happen. the alternative minimum tax kicks in hiking taxes with more than half of married couples two children by $4,000 a year. it would ray taxes on workers and the trillion dollars in spending cuts that officials say cost jobs and slow economic growth. let me bring in our "news nation" political panel. we have zachary karabell and loy wis romano and david goodfriend. we have it covered. jonathan, i'll start with you. comparing what we heard from speaker boehner this morning and what we heard from the president, it sounds like two people who really want to find some kind of deal here. i think the president sounds similar to what he sounded like before re-election, quite honestly. >> he does. his decision hasn't changed but elections have consequences. they were close in july of 2011 on a grand bargain. the b

congress and soon regarding the deadly aattack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. petraeus was one of three witnesses on the agenda for that closed senate hearing, which at this point is still scheduled to happen on capitol hill this thursday. either way, congress could collagen petraeus before them even as they question why they were kept in the dark about a month-long fbi inquiry that ended his tenure at the country's top spy agency. >> this thing just came so fast and so hard, and since then it's been like peeling an onion. every day another peel comes off, and you see a whole new dimension to this. my concern has actually escalated over the last few days. >> and questions also remain about why the president and the white house were not notified about the scandal surrounding petraeus until late last week. republican congressman eric cantor says he was notified back in october after being contacted by an fbi employee concerned that sensitive information may have been compromised. >> once the fbi realized it was investigating the director of the cia or the cia director came one their focus
